Sometimes I eat something to immediately think: I need to make a version of this at home. It's how I have some of my favorite recipes: lemon focaccia from France, an oven adaptation of tandoori chicken from New York's ubiquitous Indian restaurants, noodles bowls based of Boston's Bon Me food truck.
And now I really want to bake myself a birthday cake based on this dreaming princess cupcake I had at Little Cupcake Bakery last week. First, there is the meringue frosting that gets me. Next, there is just a little raspberry in the middle. Then, one of my absolute favorite flavors present with an almond vanilla cake.
It's a simple combination yet I think it would make a killer double layer cake too, perhaps with a lemon almond cake to just get wild for my January birthday! I'll see you in winter, dreaming princess birthday cake.
